In this episode, I have a great conversation with The Equestrian Dietitian aka Natalie Gavi. Natalie is a Los Angeles based Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and a nationally recognized nutrition expert who is passionate about the power that food plays in health, disease prevention & management, and athletic performance.
I wanted to have Natalie on the podcast as I like to take a holistic approach to horse training and to have an awesome relationship with our horses we also need to take care of ourselves as much as we take care of them.
In this episode we dive into:
-Nutrition basics for health and performance so that we can be the best partners for our horse
-Dieting 101: pros/cons of traditional dieting and the best way/s we can make positive changes to our bodies
-My own experience dieting and the struggles I had surrounding that
-Her approach to help a client with binge eating and self-soothing with food
-How we can shield ourselves from feeling shame around our bodies in an industry that has a very aesthetic image
-Societal conditioning and body image
-Shifting the focus from appearance to appreciation and having compassion for your body
-Approach nutrition from a lens of self-care vs self-control
and so much more
